about this item

In addition to being a well-known Swedish diplomat, Ambassador Jarring (1907-2002) was a scholar who made significant contributions to Turkic studies that were fundamental to the emergence and development of Uyghur and Xinjiang studies. Fellow scholars took the 10th anniversary of his death as an opportunity both to pay tribute to his accomplishments and to present recent findings in those fields in a May 2012 conference in Copenhagen. The 14 papers cover language, history, religion, and kinship and gender. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
